The Yaesu FC-20 is an antenna tuner not a radio.

PS why is this in DMR & Digital Modes?

What do you want to use the handheld radio for??
As the FC 30 is what s called a Antenna Matching unit. It goes between a transceiver & the antenna & is used to fool the radio into seeing a matched (50 ohm) antenna.
The problem really is that if you want to use anything beyond your current level of understanding, then you will probably be wasting your money. It is better to start small, learn & evolve, than spend a lot of money on equipment you cannot use properly & waste that money & current interest.

What is a starting point for what??
This posted under the Digital heading & if you do not know the basics of radio, maybe you are starting in the wrong point.
There is a good reason why people do not start their driving by going out & getting a 150 ton heavy haulage job. We all had to learn to walk, we all had to get the basics on radio, I made some stupid mistakes when I was learning & I still do. As I am still learning about radio & always (I hope) will, as finding new things to learn about radio is what keeps it interesting.
Start by learning about radio.
Learn what you want from radio.
Learn the basics of what radio is.

What exactly are you asking? We still don't quite know what to say? We asked what radio you wanted advice on, you didn't give it - it was mentioned that the model number could be a tuner?

I think you wanted to ask if a certain radio was worth getting - we can answer this, once you tell us what it is, and what you need it to do?

It's easy to be confused so help us out a bit.
